*The crisis of Global University*

On Thursday, June 11th at 2 p.m. in Room 2, at the Faculty of Humanities of
La Sapienza University, there will be a transnational meeting titled ?Global
University: Labour, Struggles and the Common within the Crisis?, organized
by Lettere in Onda, Edu-factory collective and Queen Mary University of
London.

The speakers of this meeting will be Andrew Ross (New York University),
Morgan Adamson (University of Minnesota), Christofer Newfield (University of
California - Santa Barbara), Pedro Barbosa Mendes (Uninomada- Brazil),
Stefano Harney (Queen Mary University of London).
Also *Dillip Kumar Dash*, student of Hyderbrad University (India) and
protagonist of contemporary conflicts in the universities of South Asia,
should have been taking part at this meeting as international speaker.
Unfortunately, we heard from Dillip that the italian Embassy of New Delhi
denied his visa, without reason, blocking the possibility of his
participation in the meeting that will take place tomorrow in Rome.
Global University is a field of conflict, where the mobility of researchers,
professors and students must be a right and cannot be the new measure of
exploitation acted at the global level.
For us, Global University means to put in crisis its hierarchies and
differentiations: freedom of movement, free circulation of ideas and bodies
that live the university and build it every day.
We denounce this dire act from italian authorities, that confirms again
Italy as an inhospitable country, which practices a generalized attack on
the free and open exchange of ideas and the freedom of movement.

*La crisi dell?Universit? Globale*

Alla facolt? di Lettere LaSapienza, gioved? 11 alle ore 14 in Aula 2, si
terr? un meeting transnazionale dal titolo ?Global University. Labour,
Struggles and the Common within the Crisis?, organizzato da Lettere in Onda,
edu-factory collective e Queen Mary University of London.
A quest?evento parteciperanno Andrew Ross della New York University, Morgan
Adamson della University of Minnesota, Christofer Newfield della University
of California- Santa Barbara, Pedro Barbosa Mendes di Uninomada- Brazil,
Stefano Harney della Queen Mary University of London.
Tra gli ospiti internazionali invitati a questo incontro avrebbe dovuto
partecipare anche Dillip Kumar Dash dall?Universit? di Hyderbrad, India,
studente e protagonista delle attuali lotte studentesche nel sud asiatico.
Abbiamo appreso oggi dallo stesso Dillip che l?ambasciata italiana di New
Delhi ha rifiutato, senza giustificazione, il suo visto impedendogli cos? di
partecipare all?evento che si terr? a Roma.

Global University ? un campo di battaglia, laddove la libera mobilit? di
ricercatori, docenti e studenti deve essere un diritto e non pu? essere la
nuova misura dello sfruttamento agita su scala globale.

Global University vuol dire per noi mettere in crisi le sue gerarchie e
differenziazioni: libert? di movimento, libera circolazione delle idee e dei
corpi che l?universit? la vivono e la costruiscono ogni giorno.

Denunciamo questo fatto gravissimo da parte delle autorit? italiane che
riconferma l?Italia come un paese inospitale, fondato su un attacco
generalizzato all?intelligenza e alla libert? di movimento.
